One of many interesting events that occurred during Sunday's broadcast of the MTV Video Music Awards, the debut of a fragment of Death Cab for Cutie's "Meet Me On the Equinox," from the New Moon soundtrack, sent as many mouths a-moving as Kanye's ridiculous grandstanding. MTV now has the whole track streaming on its website; other rumored collaborators on the soundtrack to the soft-core vampire porn sequel include Thom Yorke and Bon Iver.
In other Ben Gibbard-related news, the Death Cab frontman's collaboration with Jay Farrar, titled One Fast Move Or I'm Gone and inspired by Jack Kerouac's Big Sur, will be released on October 20 via F-Stop/Atlantic. The duo will play a handful of shows around the country shortly after the album's release. The dates are as follows:
10.23.09 Los Angeles, CA @ El Rey Theatre
10.24.09 San Francisco, CA @ Bimbo's 365 Club
10.26.09 Chicago, IL @ Lincoln Hall
10.28.09 New York, NY @ Webster Hall
